The technology used in the data centers is aging and to keep pace with the current requirements is becoming cumbersome. The replacement of old infrastructure is crucial to integrate new technology. The new technology will improve the speed, stability, and efficiency at the data centers.
Solid State Drives (SSDs) are quickly becoming the primary building blocks for the data centers. The SSD market is currently valued at $43 billion and is expected to reach $141 billion by 2022. SSD is efficient in the speed of performance with better storage capacity that is critical for virtual applications and cloud computing. Improved processors are also making their mark on the data centers, fiber optics and liquid cooling are helping higher performance computing.
Inculcating new technology in data centers has created some form of anxiety for the IT managers. Replacing the legacy hardware with new tech requires an advance plan of migration and information transfer. There have examples of technology adoptions that have resulted in exponential growth but also organizations that took a downward spiral.
Cloud services are on the rise and data centers form a major backbone of cloud services that have been provided to the users. There has been a steady rise in the demand for data centers that can satisfy both enterprise and consumer needs.
